It's Monday what are you reading and Blue Monday!

This week I am joining Sheila at One Persons Journey through a world of Books for
the Monday meme: It's Monday! What are you reading..
Well this week I finished,
Tempted by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
4.5 out of 5
The life and times of the thunderbolt kid : a memoir by Bill Bryson
3.75 out of 5
Definitely dead by Charlaine Harris
4.0 out of 5
The Cinderella Deal by Jennifer Crusie
4.5 out of 5
and I am currently listening to
Ice by Linda Howard
Employed by his father, the county sheriff, Officer Gabriel McQueen is bitter when he is ordered to find a neighbor who has gone missing in the midst of a bad winter storm. To make matters worse, the missing person is none other than Lolly Helton, a woman who Gabriel remains on bad terms with. However, when he discovers that Lolly's home has been invaded by gunmen, resulting in her kidnapping, Gabriel must take to the woods alone and without backup to save the distressed woman.
and reading
Worst Case by James Patterson
Detective Michael Bennett and FBI Abduction Specialist Emily Parker reluctantly team up to stop a killer targeting not only the children of New York's wealthiest families--but the entire city of New York.

Also this week I am joing Smiling Sally's blog and posting on Blue Monday!
This is a centerpiece I put together from stuff I found at Michaels. And now since
my dh got me a gift card to Michaels I can get going on finding some new
decorations! Can't wait to visit all the other sites that have posted this week.

I really enjoyed the collaboration of James P and Michael L so will read all of them, hope you enjoy it.

You had a great week, most books 4stars and above.

Thanks for the comment of my slideshow, it is so 'me' :-) We obviously have similar visual taste, we chose the same blog design.

My reading habits lean toward historical novel..I think I have told you that..but this one sounds like a real cliff hanger!

I really enjoy Bill Bryson and James Patterson is a favourite too although I haven't read this one yet.

Happy reading!

It looks like you had a great week and another one planned! Tempted is sitting in my TBR pile, but it's probably going to wait until the next one comes out so I don't have to wait. And I'm a huge Harris fan! I love anything she writes!

Hope you have a great week! Get some great stuff at Michaels and be sure to use a coupon! Thanks for stopping by my site too!
